The SRK Rollback: Best of June 15-21, 2018

By on June 22, 2018 at 10:00 am

Welcome to the Rollback: a frame-by-frame look back at our past week’s most notable news — and our favorite SRK articles — from June 15 to June 21, 2018!

Zavian “mushin_Z” Sildra, Editor-in-Chief:

Frame 1:
Groh Soul Charge
Shoryuken at E3 2018: Interview with SoulCalibur VI producer Motohiro Okubo

Our Associate Editor sat down with the SoulCalibur VI head hanchō at E3 2018 to talk about what to expect from the latest iteration of the weapons-based fighter.

Frame 2:
3rd strike logo basic
Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike tutorial — Ryu bread-and-butter combo guide & general notes

Bafael starts to look at the nitty-gitty of 3rd Strike, starting with the foundation of Street Fighter gameplay design himself, the wandering warrior Ryu.

Frame 3:
Core-A-Gaming-Nerfs-&-BuffsCore-A-Gaming looks at how UYU’s NL and Oil King are dealing with buffs and nerfs in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition

A hot topic in our age of constant patching, here’s how two pros look at Capcom’s insistence to meddle with their mains.

Frame 4:
sfv menat fighting chance
Survival Mode improvements are coming to Street Fighter V, alongside a new feature: Menat’s “Fighting Chance”

Survival Mode was long, long overdue for some changes (pretty much any changes), and while Fighting Chance is basically a lootbox system, it seems harmless enough — maybe even a little amusing.

Frame 5:
sfv evo 2018 t-shirt art crop 750x400
A new Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition tribute t-shirt is available to Evo 2018 attendees on

This fantastic tribute art speaks for itself. I want this as a poster, not a t-shirt!

Crow_Spaceboy, Assistant Editor:

Frame 1:
Street Fighter pros challenged to exhibition match in Power Rangers: Legacy Wars at Mobile Masters tournament

I hate that the Power Rangers mobile fighter is closer to Yomi (the card game) than Fantasy Strike (the fighting game based on Yomi) is. Also I really just want to see how Justin Wong does.

Frame 2:
Scuf Vantage Disassembled Featured Image
Shoryuken at E3 2018: Giving the SCUF Vantage PlayStation 4 controller a fighting chance

Truth be told, I wasn’t on-board with this thing until reading Austyn’s hands-on experience. If you’re on the fence, check it out.

Frame 3:
Playable Terry Bogard and Mui Mui revealed in SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy’s trophy list

How did SNK know my favorite heroine was Terry Bogard?

Frame 4:
koushun at canada cup 2018 sailor moon s 3rd strike
Legendary Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon S player Koushun will be competing in Canada Cup 2018’s tournament

With the way fighting games have been going lately, it wouldn’t surprise me at this point if all the attention Sailor Moon S has been getting led to a new ArcSys fighter.

Frame 5:
ARIKA releases PlayStation 4 vs. PlayStation 4 Pro “output comparison” video — just to reveal Vulcano Rosso

It’s almost time, my dudes. June 28th.
